A good friend of mine, Jim, called me last night and said "Hey tomorrow is the only day that I can go out hunting. Do you want to come along and film and call one in for me?" Now, knowing the location and the amazing backdrop that his ground has ... I was ALL IN. 3:45 am wake up call and as the sun came up the woods erupted to an a level of gobbling that exceeded the cumulation of gobbles that I had heard all season. This bird in particular was roosted on an edge 75 yards from us. I watched him fly down and then go into the woods to chase down some ladies. 45 minutes later I hit the call to test the waters and he gobbled hard just inside the woods. A minute later he was standing across the pond next to us, strutting and gobbling. Over the next 10 minutes he walked all the way around the pond to get to our setup. At 25 yards, Jim let his 12 gauge eat. A great bird with 1 1/4" hooks. Such a fun morning out there with my long time dear friend.
